On 1 January 2014, two institutions with long and proud histories were merged to form a new university: The Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU). The University’s academic fields are concentrated into seven faculties.
NMBU's research and study programmes are enabling people all over the world to tackle the big, global challenges regarding the environment, sustainable development, how to improve human and animal health, renewable energy sources, food production, and land- and resource management.
The Norwegian University of Life Sciences is a hub of expertise within life sciences, environmental sciences and in the arena of sustainable development.
The research institutions at Campus Ås and NMBU together constitute an internationally competitive research and educational community within bioscience, because these research communities create new academic synergies and new cross-disciplinary approaches.
Research at NMBU can face the major global issues of environment, sustainable development, better human and animal health, climate challenges, renewable energy sources, food production “from land and fjord to the table” and land and resource management.
